More International Work for SKC Wizards

Today there was more international work for SKC Wizards (this is likely going to be my compromise between Sporting KC and the KC Wizards) players today around the world. First, down in Martinique, Stephane Auvray and Shavar Thomas both captained their national teams as they kicked off their Digicel Caribbean Cup campaigns in Group I. Auvray and Guadeloupe opened the day against Guyana. Based on reports, Guadeloupe dominated the game, but in the end poor finishing doomed the French territory to a draw after they squandered chances. Loic Loval scored for Guadeloupe in the 70th minute, but they gave up the equalizer 4 minutes from time and Auvray and Guadeloupe now sit in second place in the group.

They currently sit behind Thomas and Jamaica, as the Reggae Boyz took out Antigua and Barbuda today 3-1. The Jamaicans jumped out to a 3-0 half time lead through Luton Shelton's brace and a goal from Dane Richards. An early goal in the second half by Antigua was not enough as the Jamaicans are looking defender their crown. Thomas and Jamaica will meet Auvray and Guadeloupe on Monday in the second group play game.

Finally, India continues to prepare for this January's Asian Cup as they played Hatta Club, another UAE club side. India finally broke out of a long slump and picked up a 3-1 win over the club side. Wizards forward, Sunil Chhetri, though did not feature again for the Indian team as they finally picked up a win after some embarrassing loses.

Reasonable compromise. Don't back down.

I lived in South Korea for a couple of years, and got to see some Asian Cup matches. India are so over matched when it comes to playing teams such as South Korea, Japan, Australia and even China and North Korea.
